Death bed

Last Tuesday I was running around like a crazy person. I did the make up for the models for Nordstrom's fashion show early in the morning(anything before 8 is early!) And had New Beginnings for Young Women's later that night. I had to make desert for 72 people and alfredo sauce. So too say the least, I had a lot going on,on this particular day. I started to feel a little ache and tired by late afternoon, but just thought it was from the labors of my day. However,by the end of our activity I felt like complete CRAP,CRAP and more CRAP!(Love that word!) I woke up in the middle of the night(feeling like CRAP) and freezing cold, but burning up as well. My throat felt like I was swallowing glass and my whole body hurt.Fortunately for me,Ty stayed home and took over. I couldn't even get out of bed.I thought I had the ever dreaded flue.Thursday was pretty much the same thing,CRAP! By Friday I knew I needed to go see the Dr. First thing in the morning I made myself an appointment,drove myself to the Dr.(sometimes it stinks being an adult) and I got myself a bad case of Strep throat AND a double ear infection! That explains the "swallowing glass" feeling. Those of you who know me, know, I don't do well with shots or needles for that matter. But I got 2 doses(2 shots) of antibiotics in my bum! Well actually my thigh, but its all about the same thing anyway! And I of coarse fainted, like I normally do with shots.Its a mental thing, but I don't know what to do about it. Anyway, after a full day I started to feel so much better. I don't know how the pioneers did it.That's why so many died! I would have died too. 
 I'm just so grateful to feel better and  for modern day medicine.I 'm so grateful that I am generally a healthy person. You take your health for granted until you feel like CRAP, and all you want is to feel yourself again.I had Tyler give me a blessing as well and I am so grateful to have the priesthood in my home.That's something I also tend to take for granted.I'm glad to be up and going. It took a few days to get the house in order. Husbands are great for taking care of the kids but the house turns to CRAP when mom is sick. Whats up with that?

I am so sorry! Strep is like knocking on deaths door, and saying come on in! I am on the other hand, really glad that you updated. It seems of late that updates are few and far between from everyone!! And so goes the same for comments! I think I am a comment junkie! So I am glad that you are feeling better! Nick passed out when he had mono! We were engaged and he was way sick. After taking a small sample of blood he slid down and out of the chair and onto the floor. I tried to hold him up while at the same time trying to get the stupid nurses attention. Seriously! Oh ya and then there was this one time that I was delivering our first child and I was pushing and Nick grew faint and pail. THey sat him down and made him breath into a bag and put his head between his knees! Really? Then they brought him som OJ. When I had freaking ice chips! When she started to rub his back, I was like HELLO I am freaking having a baby here! Minus drugs at that moment atleast. Wow I was annoyed to say the least! Hehehehe I love my husband dearly and did feel bad, just also annoyed.

Sorry you're not feeling well. I took Maddy and Joey in today and Joey has strep and its probably on the way for Maddy. No fun!

Sorry you have been sick. Our whole family got it last week and of course Rowen got it the worst. I'm glad you are feeling better! I am with you on the shots and modern day medicine. I would have killed over as a pioneer woman for so many reasons.
To answer the question you left on my blog...NO we are not having anymore kids. I am a two baby mom and Brad's fine with that. I love the two I've got to pieces, I just don't feel we need another baby. I know, I am selfish huh. We need to do lunch sometime.

Glad you are feeling better. I use to get strep all the time. I finally got my Tonsils taken out 3 years ago and haven't gotten it since.

Your family is just adorable.
